Did you know that the largest wine cellar in the world lives in the tiny town of Tampa, Florida? Did you also know that this wine cellar rests below an old mansion that has been frequented by Presidents, celebrities, and other famous people from all over the world? Did you know that this place is none other than Bern’s Steak House.

Tampa, Florida is quickly making a name for itself for foodies everywhere. With its deep cultural influences, this waterfront metropolis is easily becoming “the it place” for dining and entertainment. Among these places is Bern’s Steak House, a staple among Tampa’s locals and guests, and a must-visit for anyone who has never been. This five-star, luxury restaurant resides in the prominent South Tampa neighborhood near Hyde Park and remains to be the city (and possibly state’s) most famous restaurant.

Not only does the menu boast some of the most succulent cuts of meat, but also offers organic, locally grown vegetables from its own Bern’s Farm, an extravagant dessert room located above the main dining, and a wine cellar filled with some of the best wines from all over the world (some even 200+ years old). The history of Bern’s dates back to the early 1950’s where a young Bern Laxer was set to move to California, but after visiting an aunt in Tampa, decided to call this place home. The rest is history.

Bern's Deci

The dining experience is something that must be experienced to be truly appreciated. The interior of this old mansion is rich with dark mahoganies, deeply painted walls, old portraits and paintings, and furniture that is so beautiful it belongs in a museum. Spiral staircases and large fireplaces hug the walls and surround the guests, giving it a cozy and relaxed atmosphere.
The staff at Bern’s is incredibly knowledgeable in all things wine and steak, with an intense mentor ship and training program designed to make them the best in the industry.

Reservations are strongly encouraged.
